    CPL new teams speculation

    I think one of the things to consider is over extending the player pool such that it diminishes the product. I also feel that you have to be careful of the communities you place teams in from a business standpoint. I'm pretty sure that the size of some of these clubs will grow pretty quick in attendance figures. A league of ...... West - Victoria, Edmonton, Calgary, Winnipeg, Regina, East - Halifax, Hamilton, York, Laval, Ottawa , Quebec City Would suffice

    Winnipeg Valour FC

    id say a lot of teams have the majority of their players signed at this point. Winnipeg will probably have sacremento and fargo. I wonder about bustos, musse, danto ?

    Its as good or better then most MLS teams.....I'm pretty sure Winnipeg could have a team in MLS and do quite well

    Fikayo Tomori

    Despite the commitment of Davies and Talba, I think it is imperative for the CMNT to secure Tomori to continue to grow. Even if they have all this exciting young talent the teams potential is going no where with out Two class CB who can defend and get the ball into the attacking players. I personally think that we have a good chance to secure Tomori. If his goal is to play in a world cup, the likely hood of securing a spot with England during Southgate's lead is highly unlikely. Stones, MacGuire, Gomez, walker, with all likely be around for another two tournaments. Plus you have guys like Micheal Keane, Tartowski in the wings as well. Does a competitive u21 match tie him?

    Upei generally gets by on organization and hard work. Lewis is a very good coach but upei never challenges for a aus title

    Mun doesn’t do well because they don’t run a proper university athletics program. How many Newfoundland males go play for other established programs? Ottawa fury academy was pay for play. Two Newfoundland players didn’t go anywhere with it

    CPL General

    MLS teams go through this exercise it rarely accomplishes anything of substance But for CPL it might work there's likely a few experienced players around that would take the opportunity to get some exposure. Plus the Challenge Trophy leagues in some provinces have a number of ex pros or high level players who have been out of the pro game for awhile and might seize the opportunity to get an invite to camp. I think of a team like Edmonton Scottish

    Players you expect to see in the CPL

    I look at past FC Edmonton and Ottawa Fury Rosters will give some indication of the type of players that will be making up the rosters in this league. Guys with MLS and low league Europe experience without a contract at that level. Id also look at Canadian NCAA graduates without an MLS contract. And Very high level CIS players Canadian USL and NASL players L1 players and PDL players MLS academy graduates without MLS contract Youth Canadian Internationals without a meaningful Foreign born players with Canadian parents or grandparents Older pros like Nick Ledger wood, David Edgar who are on the tail end of there career I think it has the possibly for a competitive league from the start

    I think the championship is a good league......maybe I should have said the league below that

    St. John's CPL

    No offense but if your including a lot of these players in the "stars" categories ( i.e petite, hedges, wright-Phillips) its a sign your league is not strong. And if they were star players wouldn't you think they could establish themselves in top European leagues not 2nd and 3rd divisions. Dwyer with Orlando looks great in MLS and would be a decent player on a mid tier championship team in England. Over this hill should also include those in the 30's ....decline is pretty rapid at 30

    St. John's CPL

    I was at a game about a month ago.... Your not getting many EPL La Liga etc players coming from there......and the ones that do generally are inflated because of the lack of quality in MLS

    The other thing with Ottawa is would they be allowed to retain their players depending on how the player allocation rules go in CPL

    St. John's CPL

    MLS is like watching 2nd division in England with one or two over the hill stars. It would be st. lawerance crowding into their cars...and that is decreasing every year b/c the population is dwindling on the BP. Grand Bank hasn't had a team since the 80's id say. The other thing is that NL support there own. This is the same crowd that thinks beer league senior hockey is greater then the ahl. theres no NLDers capable of playing pro soccer.
